With the new school year back in swing and the excitement over the start of football season still hanging in the air, Bonner Springs High School is preparing for homecoming.

This year’s homecoming week starts Monday, Sept. 14 and will be full of Braves fan favorites.

A few changes have occurred in the usual homecoming schedule. Due to continued construction on Kansas Highway 32, the homecoming parade has been moved. The new route starts at the First Christian Church and goes down Nettleton to Morse, then continues on Morse to Bluegrass, and ends at BSHS .

Another change includes the Homecoming Royalty Assembly and Pep Rally. This year, a national program to warn students against the dangers of drunk driving will take up the pep rally assembly time. The student news program, Teepee Talk, will air a segment featuring each of the royalty candidates, after which students can vote on their choice for king and queen.

The full schedule for BSHS homecoming week is as follows:
